Monday’s Thrifty Treasures

Well I have been on vacation so there has not been much time for bargain hunting!  Really too hot for very many yard sales in AZ right now.  However below are a few of my most recent finds at Goodwill.  I used my 20% coupon I received for donating on all of the below items and spent less than $20.

Goodwill 003

I got Sofia a great Madam Alexander doll to go along with her AG dolls – this doll is similar in height and style to AG - $3.99

I also got Sofia a hat that will be embellished for next year’s Kentucky Derby - .99

Last but not least I got 10 hard back books.  I love buying my books at the Goodwill.  Then after I read them, I donate them to my library so they can sell them in their Friends of the Library store.  That way, not only did the GW make money from me but the library can make money as well! I always buy my books at the GW when they are 1/2 price (either on 1/2 price day or based on what week # is 1/2 off).  I got all these books for less than $2.00 each.

That is all I have this week.  Make sure you head over to Rhoda’s to check out everyone’s treasures!

Cute doll, and what a great hat for the derby! I've never been but have always wanted to.

Alise has that exact same hat. It came with the Strausburg dress that I bought for her on Ebay for Easter.
